The Ox is a supurb bassist definately, but so is Jack Cassidy of the Airplane.

Jaco played some superb bass check out Hejira by Joni Mitchell.

Matt Freeman of Rancid is pretty hot too.

And my twin sons, excellant bassists both

"Matt Freeman of Rancid is pretty hot too."

He was great with Op Ivy and even better with Rancid.

The opening bass line of Journey to the End of East Bay is one of the best beginnings of a song I've heard...

As for Phil - me and friend were listening to the Dead channel on satellite and they had an interview with Jerry talking about how Phil would play 4 minute plus phrases that wouldn't make sense to anyone looking at it as a traditional bass line for a song, but if you were to look at from afar, or something, it was one well thought out series of notes that made sense.

I don't understand what that really means as I'm not a musician but it was cool to hear Jer say...
